The VDL stallions did a great job at CSI**** Geesteren. VDL Zapatero was second in the young horse final, ridden by Angelique Hoorn. The day before Zapatero jumped a splendid clear round.
Under the saddle of Jur Vrieling VDL Wittinger didn't touch a rail and ranked 6th in a 1.45 m class. Vrieling rode VDL Emmerton in the first qualifier for the Grand Prix. Emmerton showed enormous scope, had a brilliant clear round and ranked 9th.
After a superb clear round and 4th place in the second qualifier aboard VDL Bubalu, Jur Vrieling chose this VDL bred son of Baloubet Du Rouet for the 1.60 m Grand Prix of CSI Twente. They managed to stay clear in the - very tricky - first round. In the jump-off, at top speed, one rail came down. VDL Bubalu ended up 10th.
